"This new series of paintings began in late 2020 when I was searching for new subject matter. I was drawn to how majestic and powerful horses can look regardless of the setting they’re placed in.
I began finding vintage imagery of polo players posed on or standing by their horses and I found this to be a fascinating opportunity to get lost in creating new environments that focus on the gentle balance of duality. Everything within these paintings is battling against another force; space vs. flatness, realism vs. fantasy, comedy vs. seriousness. The titles of each painting coincide with song titles from The Velvet Underground’s album “Loaded”.
